Pancreas Cancer Web


Rob is 40 and was diagnosed 4-2001. He recieved chemo and radiation at Ireland Cancer Center,Cleveland,Oh.At this time he is only able to recieve small amounts of fluids through his stomach tube. Pain management is becoming difficult as he has such difficult taking meds orally.Duragesic patch did not give him relief and depends on Roxanol used through his feeding tube PRN.He began hiccupping two days ago and it seems continuous.He had just been married when diagnosed. His wife is surely an angel. My sister and I care for him so that she can work.He is our only brother, the baby. This is so very hard. Someone write me please. How do we let him go?
